  • 33,921 passengers last fall & spring semester for the Red/Blue lines. UNC Asheville shuttle moved more passengers any previous year!

  • Increasing ridership by 102% over the Spring 2014 semester has given UNC Asheville the equivilant of freeing up nearly 100 parking spaces. No additional impervious surface needed!
  • For September 2014, the UNC Asheville shuttle moved 5,608 passengers. This monthly total beat four (4) municipal routes in the Asheville Transit System (ART) August Ridership Report. This puts the Campus Shuttle on the same activity level as ART's N2, N3, and W3 routes.

  • The University offers FREE pre-trip vehicle inspections before major breaks! In the Fall, it is generally about 1-2 weeks before Thanksgiving. In the Spring, inspections take place just before Spring Break. It is FREE to all University community members.

  • 17% Increase in Fuel Economy! We increased our MPG from 7.6 to 8.9 compared to the Fall of 2013 sample dates (October-January for Shuttle 80).

  • 99.84%: The service hour reliability rate for scheduled routes. The UNC Asheville shuttle only had three hours of interrupted service during the entire Fall 2014 semester!
